I got out of 2-strokes and 4-strokes thought this bike conversion kit was the answer it a Voilmart clone, but I got 3 hubs I magically acquired one is voilmart stamp.
Well, I was really happy with it until my odometer hit 1000 miles then it hit like a karate chop!

Drastic loss of power and speed! I have a 1500-watt battery, think it 20 amps and a 1000-watt hub. I try to keep it charge to 6 bars sometimes a green light other times not.

I was hoping it was the wind dragging me down but it's not. Use to be on pulling a hill the bar speed would suck down to 2 or 3 bars then release throttle had it would rise to 6 bars. Since the trouble began it won't suck anymore but will slow down lose power instead.

When buying the battery I ask the company would it be safe use a 1500-W to a 1000-W hub. He said yes it will run. But for how long before it will burn the bushings or some other thing-a-me-jig. I did buy 2 years insurance on the battery expensive $300.00, but if it is battery replacement take 2 to 4 weeks and this is my only transportation and I live in the sticks miles away from anywhere.

Anyone got a solution?

It would seem like a battery issue from what you are describing. Is the battery getting a full charge, or are you unplugging early to increase battery life?
